Pat McAfee became a SmackDown color commentator in April of last year and brought new energy to Michael Cole. McAfee signed a contract extension with WWE in July to stay in the company for a long time.
New York Post reported that the former NFL punter has started a new job as a full-time member of ESPN’s “College GameDay” broadcast. McAfee will appear on the show this Saturday in Austin, Texas for the Alabama vs. Texas game.
The new deal would be making Pat McAfee incredibly busy, as he has to do commentary on Friday Night SmackDown and will have to appear on College GameDay. Also, he will continue his podcast “The Pat McAfee Show” on YouTube and it is currently in the midst of a $120 million four-year deal with FanDuel.
After the news broke, Pat McAfee tweeted the following.
